We’re pleased to share some of our clients’ praises for SSP.

“Samantha Smith and her team exude capability and creativity. They not only make your event happen exactly as you’ve envisioned it–they push it to the next level, adding clever touches and grace notes at every turn. Everything matters–the venue choice and design, the food, the flow of the event, the speaker experience–and nothing escapes SSP’s notice and magical touch. I recommend them unequivocally.”

Polly LaBarre, co-founder and editorial director, the MIX and creator/host of the MIX Mashup


"We worked with Samantha Smith Productions (SSP) to help us plan and host a scientific research symposium. The SSP team was exceptionally creative, responsive, as well as fun to work with. Their expertise and professionalism was evident throughout the event. We were very impressed by their attention to detail and high standards. We are looking forward to working with SSP on our next symposium."

Jackie Hausman, program officer, Kenneth Rainin Foundation

SSP-produced events have not only helped improve our bottom line, they’ve energized our workforce, and transformed our company culture.”

“When Samantha and I worked together at Old Navy, she was a strong driving force behind bringing our brand’s vision and mission to life through consistent & creative messaging in everything we did, whether it was crafting communication to our customers, educating and motivating our field employees, or launching some of our company’s most innovative and memorable corporate events. Samantha Smith was one of the key individuals who I could trust to be conscious of both the operations and the customer.”
